Better the devil you know.

Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday. Another Challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog and the theme is 'Give wings' set by the lovely an talented Astrid. 
This is what she said about her challenge :

'Every stamper has a little Frankenstein in them. Give a stamp without wings a pair of them. Have fun creating!!'

So I have made an art journal and this is it :

This page started out as a complete disaster. I painted the page red as that is the colour I associate with the devil... It looked dark and awful, lol, even after stencilling the chevrons with white paint over the top.
So I painted gesso over it and when that was dry I used Pan Pastel over the top. You can still see the red and the chevrons through it here and there. This was a bit more to my liking and I continued stencilling with red ink, stamping with white and black ink, spattering white and black ink and doodling around the page. Next I stamped Minky Girl on the page and put some washi tape where her feet were going to go. I also used some of the same tape randomly on two other places. 
I also stamped Minky on white card stock and coloured her in with Copic Markers. I drew her some horns that I slid into her head, lol...
The wings were stamped on white card, silver embossed and coloured in with a red marker; I later sprayed a red Star burst spray over the top. I cut them out and decided also to cut them down as they were a bit big for little Minky. I also clear embossed Minky. Everything was then assembled on the page. The sentiment was made with sticky letters. 

I used the following stamps:
